    ....what a life sleeping when others are working ...

    at this stage (and until i return home from work) i have downloaded the os 4.2.1.94 as well as the latest desktop manager (4.2 sp2) onto my portable harddrive, this i will use as a source or i will upload it onto my computer, whatever you recommend?

    My plan is to delete or uninstall my current desktop manager, and then install the new 4.2 sp2, is this right?

    Then i will run the fix for the lag? does this sound like the right course of action???

    I can email you a pasted screen of my portable harddrive (download) just to be sure i have all right...as i cant paste the screen onto my reply.

    I'm gonna say, upload the os to your PC.
    yes uninstall the desktop manager and install sp2 then you can upgrade the os.
    I have had no call lag with 1.94
    good luck and let us know how it goes when you get home

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ nope it is still saved in the folder you specified. but to be safe do a backup just before beginning! Its always safer that way!

    Re: Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ ok the original desktop manage you had. Do you still have disk? If so reinstall that. I know a pain but let's start there. Then delete the vendor file from the old os. Load the os on the pc and go from there.
    Not sure why the error but that's another post.
    Let me know where you end up!

    Re: Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    hey ya'll nicky - did you unzip the file or extract the file? is that the error you get when you unzip?did you save this on a flash drive bc you don't have internet at home?

    if you have the disk, that's fine and much faster, but it won't give you sp2 ..

    it will at the very least get the OS onto your bb...

    Re: Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    Cherri Kayos

    Well...i have lock and loaded...

    I have the intial cd that came with the blackberry, i have reloaded the software and then removed the vendor file, i copied and pasted the 4.2.1.94.exe , i was able to run this through to the end, no prob!

    Connected my blackberry to the computer, and nothing...i have tried synchronising, and the standard synchronising screen comes up " one moment please" and then after a few seconds it goes back to home screen as if all is done.

    Firstly, how do i know if the the update occurred? secondly, how do i get the sp2 working?

    Re: Help installing new OS4.2 to help stop lagging

    the update did not occur, you need to run app loader in the desktop manager, not synch
    it does take time.
    after hitting app loader you should see a screen that states upgrades available, or something to that effect. try that and let me know!!!!

    wheile this process is happening your bb will go white, maybe throw an error, it's all normal. be patient!!! don't unplug the BB. thats really bad!
